Temple Augmentation with Implants

Sunken temples can be caused by a skull deformity or by thinning temple muscles.

Our plastic surgeons can correct the sunken temples permanently with specially selected temple implants.

Our plastic surgery team in Düsseldorf uses these temple implants specifically to shape and build up the temporal muscle volume according to your wishes.

Special features of temple augmentation with implants

Soft tissue (muscle) is built up with the implants. Due to their shape and consistency, they adapt very well to their surroundings.

– Unlike cheek, chin and jaw angle implants, temple implants are not bone implants.


In temple correction of sunken temples, soft tissue rather than bone is built up with the help of implants.

Temple augmentation with fillers

It is also possible to inject hyaluronic acid into sunken temples to give them new volume. However, this usually does not work reliably.

Augmentation of sunken temples with implants

For surgical temple augmentation, the implants are placed between the fascia and the muscle.

The fascia is the tissue that surrounds the temple muscle as thin, sinewy skin.

This is important because an implantation directly under the skin would result in the outline of the implant not being sufficiently concealed.

We use a low-risk, low-complication incision in the area of the high temporal scalp for the operation.

This allows us to provide excellent protection for adjacent tissues and to place the implant through a relatively small incision.

In this way, the scar can also be concealed very well.

Frequently asked questions about temple augmentation

Side effects result from the insertion of the implant between the fascia and the muscle tissue.

You may experience temporary swelling and stiffness when opening your mouth.

However, you will recover from this within about 10 to 14 days.

The surgery allows you to have a permanent restorative effect of the temple muscle.

Since the placement of the temporal implants is between the fascia and the muscle, it is important on the part of the surgeons to select the implant thickness sensitively so that it can adapt optimally to its environment.
